gjâ-zym-byn is about ten years old today; I started working on
it in early March 1998.
I've done a site update to celebrate, including a fair bit more
material written on the "History of gjâ-zym-byn" essay.
I've tried to estimate how large the total gzb corpus is.
Doing a word count per page and a page count per
volume of my journal, I've probably written about
3000-5000 words in gzb per year for the last few years,
and at a slower rate in the previous few years
- probably in the range of 12,000 to 25,000 words
total. The online corpus I use for frequency analysis,
a small proportion of the total, is around 5000 words.
I'm a fair way toward my goal of becoming fluent in the
language, though I don't know how much farther I'll
ever get, without someone else to talk to in it.
